British Mother’s Day Tea in March!

Life is lovely when things are simple. Thinking about how the United Kingdom celebrates Mother’s Day in March makes so much sense. In the United States, so many activities surround Mother’s Day in May– graduations, sporting events, and more.

Coming Soon! RECIPE: Apple Oatmeal Cakes

Apple Oatmeal Cakes– Reimagining oatmeal without the mush; these individual cakes are more like sticky bread.

Tah-dah! Introducing our newest breakfast creation– Apple Oatmeal Cakes. These individual cakes can be baked and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. This is a quick breakfast served warm out of the oven or reheated in the microwave when the dashing out the door is also on the menu.

A Vegan option is also available. Send me a note, if interested!

Of course, we try to incorporate a rose in our menus, hence the rose muffin cups. Pictured here, the tasty serving is topped with whipping cream and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Pure heaven!

Recipe link coming soon. I have to make it again to be sure I got all the ingredients and proportions written.

Wonderfully yours,

Alice

Cheshire Cake– Not Always Wanting Sweet

Quintessentially British, cheese wheel wedding/celebration cakes–usually with white roses involved– are the only cakes we make here at the White Rose Manor and only by special request (I am a baker, but not a talented piping decorator, so I do not claim it). Most often, we serve as the Bed & Breakfast lodging for guests or families and their small events up for up to 20 attendees. If you desire a small event like an intimate wedding, bridal shower, memorial service, etc., the White Rose Manor may be just right for you. If you need a cheese wheel cake, we can do that, too. Come to Lincolnton. You will love it!

Pictured here is one of our Cheshire Cakes. Produced here on a larger scale for approximately 120 people, this cheese wheel cake was featured at our 2023 Christmas High Tea as the table centerpiece and then portioned as gifts to our guests. While we can create several styles of scalable cheese wheel cakes for weddings, charcuteries, etc., many cheeses work well for this lovely, edible addition to your table.

Fun fact: “Cheshire is one of Britain’s oldest and finest cheeses.”

White Rose Manor is something special, just like you.
